Sorry that I reopened this issue.  This morning I found a message in 
my inbox saying, that issue_REMOVE_THIS_FOR_LINK_220 in this tracker
has been created by user pefu512, which is my account here.  
I clearly did not.  I changed my password again.  But since I already
did this last time, I think this spam message entered the system 
using email.  I now think these spammers fetched the user list from 
this tracker. :-(
The message was already classified as spam but the issue created 
by it was still displayed on the list of unassigned issues.  
I've retired it manually.

Is there anything I can do to prevent spammers from abusing my account?
Many thanks in advance.
